Catherine Zeta Jones, glamorous wife of actor Michael Douglas, suffers the painful effects of bipolar disorder. As this ABC News article and video explain, bipolar disorder, a cause also closely associated with actress and well-known advocate Glenn Close (whose sister, Jesse, is diagnosed with bipolar disorder), can be brought on during any stage of life, usually by stress. We want to draw our readers’ attention to these six-million sufferers, who can be suicidal in extreme cases. The American Mental Health Foundation is generally devoted to research in these areas (AMHF is a current supporter of a cutting-edge nonprofit organization called Suicide Prevention Initiatives) as bipolar disorder effects individuals, even the so-called rich and famous. No one is immune.
